Discover Roman Castles

Roman Castles is the name given to the area of Cols Albani, a few miles from Rome. The name comes from the fact that these hills used to be strewn with medieval fortresses. The area includes the Laziale Volcano, now inactive, it still dominates the surrounding landscape. The lakes of Albano and Nemi, which also fall within the borders of the Regional Park of Roman Castles, were formed by volcanic activity. They are located close to one another, so it won't take you long to have a look. Around the basins, wind swept sugarcane plantations and forests of century-old chestnut trees provide a relaxing and calm atmosphere. As you head towards the sea, you will notice that the gentle slopes of Colli Lanuvini dotted with some of the region's vineyards.
